‘The Mandalorian’ Directors and First Image

October 5, 2018 at 5:45 am | Posted in News, Star Wars, Star Wars News, Television | Leave a comment
StarWars.com has details on The Mandalorian, Jon Favreau’s upcoming live action Star Wars TV show.

THE MANDALORIAN FIRST IMAGE, DIRECTORS REVEALED

DETAILS EMERGE FOR LUCASFILM’S LIVE-ACTION SERIES HELMED BY JON FAVREAU.

Production on the first Star Wars live-action streaming series has begun! After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Warsuniverse. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic. The series will be written and executive produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau, as previously announced, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone WarsStar Wars Rebels) directing the first episode. Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). It will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for updates.

There’s already rumors that actor Pedro Pascal may be in the lead role for the show. Based on that first image reveal, it definitely doesn’t look like Sabine or Bo-Katan. It’s also not someone wearing Boba Fett’s armor. But is it really a Mandalorian, or just another person wearing Mandalorian armor? Lots of questions still, but at least now we have something to feed the hype.

Perhaps the biggest news is the picture or the title, but the reveal that Dave Filoni is beginning the transition from animation to live action. The road toward Filoni directing a Star Wars film is certainly beginning.
